Baan Chom View is one of the popular Thai restaurants hanging high above the beautiful beach of Kata Noi in the south of Phuket. This group of restaurants mostly built on stilts have always been very popular for their unique location with panoramic sunset view from immense wood terrace. This group of restaurants are built on the busy road side connecting Kata Beach to Nai Harn Beach so popularity came fast.
The first restaurant to open up there was called (and is still called) After Beach and was pretty much a Reggae bar, but soon came Baan Chom View… and more. All those restaurants are a little similar and your wouldn’t really be able to tell one from the other.
Baan Chom View is the first when you drive up from Kata and just like the others it has several rows of tables on a huge terrace, but the best tables are of course those along the edge. Each time we went there it was never too busy so we never had a problem getting a table with a view.
The ‘cuisine’ served here is mostly Thai with a small choice of international dishes which makes it convenient if one of your guest needs a break, or even for the kids who sometimes are not attracted by Thai food. The menu comes in English with a lot of photos to help you making your choice.
On our last visit we had some good crab meat with curry powder (280 baht), a Tom Yam Koong (sour and spicy soup with prawns) and a Tom Ka Gai (Coconut soup with chicken) 180 baht each for, and a plate of big pink prawns BBQ (350 baht). A local beer will cost you 120 baht. Prices could be considered mid-range, not too cheap nor expensive but you also pay for the view 🙂
The service is good, food arrives very fast and dishes are well served.
Just like its neighbors, Baan Chom View is not what you would call a ‘sophisticated restaurant’ but a great escape to end the day in a memorable way, it can even be romantic with a sunset.
